Long confined to its role as a partner of motorcycle brands, IPONE is now launching its own projects alongside the best international motorcycle mechanics workshops. The watchword? Mechanical, sport and visual performance.
Why this project ?
Snow does not last but IPONE wanted to mark time with a project on the ice.
In the wild and polar white nature, the calm gives way to the Indian FTR prepared by SLCDR to grab the snow thanks to its 7mm studded tires. A striking contrast between the snow and the pop colors of the bike.
Our athlete Wilfried Delestre was able use his skills to tame the ice despite the sometimes complicated weather conditions.
What makes the bike unique
The bike already modified by Indian Angers for better conditions in Flat Track, was then improved by Manuel to be better adapted to snow and ice.
An explosion of color and a linear print
Pop colors, from pink to purple and green for a trendy motorcycle whose colours cut with the arctic white of snow.
The painting work goes far beyond the colored tank shells. The golden forks, the saddle, the aluminium coloured wheels and radiator shells were painted black to unify the bike.
The complete body of this FTR has been aesthetically crafted by Manuel to meet the 2022 winter trends.
The studded tires
7mm studded tires have been placed on wire wheels for better snow and ice grip. A wild and offbeat style for this FTR originally prepared for Flat Track.
Why the Sur Les Chapeaux De Roues workshop ?
Manuel Jouan, 33 years old, has previously worked with IPONE, notably for the Samourai Project. The quality, performance and originality of his work make the SLCDR workshop, located in Quimperlé, one of the best workshops in Europe. Performance, both mechanical and visual, was what Sébastien Billault, communications manager at IPONE, was looking for. A new challenge for the Breton.
“It was a very cool project ! This bike was originally not suited to ride on the snow. Reworking it for something so unusual that fits the season and the image of IPONE was a real challenge for me.”
Thank you to the SLCDR workshop, Indian France, Indian Angers, the Flaine Circuit, Wilfried Delestre.
